Warriors Get Beat By Thunder

How can a team beat the Celtics, then turn around and lose to a team like the Thunder? It's simple. The Warriors are the youngest team in the NBA and young teams tend to struggle on the road, yet play above expectations at home. The last home win against Toronto and the previous win over Boston displayed that Oracle is still one of the toughest venues in the league.

The only bright spots in the loss to the Thunder were the performances of Kelenna Azubuike and CJ Watson. They were the only two players that seemed to remember the opponent was the lowly Thunder, combining for 40 points and 13 of 22 shooting. Its becoming more apparent that Watson is a player with special talents on offense.

After this last pitiful loss, this much is evident: the W's can lose to any team on the road, however; they can beat any team in the league at home in the roaring Oracle Arena.
